Elbow Stiffness

“Elbow stiffness can be caused by injury or degenerative or congenital disease in and around the joint. It might also be a result of a post surgical trauma”, emphasizes Dr. Gupta, one of the most skilled hands in the hand and upper extremity field. “The only way that elbow stiffness can be ascertained is the limitation that the elbow faces while moving and the forearm while rotating. Practically speaking the elbow should not be immobilized for a very long period of time as it greatly contributes to elbow stiffness.” Dr. Gupta asserts calmly with his more than 20 years of experience giving him that deftness that requires no explanation.

“Coming back to elbow stiffness, I would like to reemphasize that generally conservative techniques work well with it accompanied by physiotherapy and splinting and it is only failure of these techniques that require arthroscopic release or open surgery depending on the traumatic condition of the elbow joint.”
